Return of the Living Dead 

When: Thu., April 18, 7:30 p.m. 2019
Price: $5-$7
Dan O'Bannon's Return of the Living Dead is not really a sequel to Night of the Living Dead, although the original script for it was written by Night's John Russo. O'Bannon punched up the story with comedy and a slightly lighter touch with the horror. A pair of medical supply company employees in Louisville, Kentucky, accidentally release the remains of a botched military experiment, infecting a nearby graveyard. A group of vintage 1980s punks are hanging out in the cemetery when the dead start crawling out of their graves, which sets off the requisite fight for survival. Return of the Living Dead's zombies pioneered the whole "eating brains" thing, which adds that extra frisson of excitement to the proceedings, as does the soundtrack of classic punk, which includes the Cramps, 45 Grave and T.S.O.L. The film screens at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 18, at Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue; www.webster.edu/film-series). Tickets are $5 to $7.
